Pink lights, beanies and the city of rock ‘n roll. Damn, I cannot wait for Infamous: Second Son. Which is why I should hurry up and do a new order for the game after my last one got cancelled for '”abuse”. Infamous: Second Son will most likely be a lengthy game. And once the end credits roll, there’ll be more content on the way.
Several key moments in my life have all had one thing in common: A chainsaw was present. Whether it was dropping it from a flight of stairs on my paid-for date (BY ACCIDENT) or scaring off Yuppie kids who done come disturb me in my shack, chainsaws have and always will be an important part of my life. And now, they’re in my games.
Usually, when a new Sony console launches, our Japanese gaming brethren get to experience it first. That was the case with PlayStation one through three, as the land of the rising Ninja Warrior obstacle course got to flaunt those devices to Western gamers. The PlayStation 4 however, launched first in several countries that weren’t Japan. But now, they finally have it.
It may have cost me quite a few pretty pennies (SO PRETTY), but I’ve been damn happy with my PlayStation 4 purchase so far. It’s a great piece of technology, with some fantastic games so far. The PS4 pretty much sold out on launch weekend back in December. And now, new stock has finally arrived.
Sometimes, you just want to head back into the past and play a game that didn’t have a million dollar marketing push attached to it, or was a fine example of back in the day when studios would take a gamble on weird ideas. Those days are dead. But the PlayStation 4 on the other hand, might just be ready to administer the kiss of life to your retro memories.
Guys, I’ve been good. I haven’t bought a single collector’s edition in ages. This includes that wicked awesome one for Batman: Arkham Origins that had that sweet statue. But collector’s editions aren’t going away, and much like a fat person trying to lose weight in a house stocked with chocolates, it ain’t helping when I see special editions like this.
Some games just can’t keep a secret. Or keep their own existence from leaking out, for that matter. One such game is Far Cry 4, which is about as secret as my Batman fan-fiction. Crap, I wasn’t supposed to mention that! Here take this Far Cry 4 rumour and forget what I just wrote!
Resident Evil games have been a very different beast as of late, jumping out of horror and into action. With disastrous results, because I never ever want to play Resident Evil 6 again. One zombie horror game that I would go back to however? Resident Evil 4, which has just been tarted up with HD visuals.
Look at your shelf. It’s empty. It needs some love, in the way that only material goods can satisfy. Time to fill that shelf space with plenty of figures. And we’ve got two fine lookin’ Street Fighter figures right here to show you.
Tis the season to be jolly, falalalalalala! Christmas is right around the corner, and chances are, you haven’t bought a gift yet for the gamer in your life. Well thanks to the cunning sea-dogs at Ubisoft and Megarom, we might have that dilemma sorted out for you.
It hasn’t been a fun couple of weeks for Fallout fans. With the Spike VGX awards coming up, many thought that Bethesda would be showing off a PS4 and Xbox One version of Fallout 4, something bolstered by a mysterious website. That turned out to be a hoax. But Fallout 4 may still be alive, and it could be set somewhere wicked awesome.
We’ve got less than two weeks to go until we get our hands on the PlayStation 4, but around the world, Sony has been shipping the console out to eager European adopters. While the Italians got a star-studded show in an Assassin’s Creed arena, the Germans did things by the book. With a very, very long line.
Anyway you slice it, motor sports are pretty damn exciting. You’ve got the speedy glamour of F1, the tight corners of the MotoGP and the off-road thrills of the World Rally Championship. For four years now, developer Milestone have been trying to capture that licensed glory in their WRC games. And once again, they’ve failed spectacularly to do so.
Ubisoft hasn’t exactly had the best track record when it comes to PC games. Blame the Uplay system or some of that terrible DRM which they mercifully scrapped this year, but console has generally had a better audience response for their games. And that’s something that Ubisoft wants to change, staring with Assassin’s Creed 4.
